Hello and welcome!
I’m a ninja, a yogi, a happiness ambassador, a green super-foodie and a healthy bartender. I like living inspired, indulging the senses, creating delicious fun, and making a mess. Healthy living should be fun, easy and delicious and I find nothing more fulfilling than inspiring people to change their lives in fun, easy and delicious ways. That’s what i call a Green and Gorgeous Life and I welcome you on the journey!
Despite my ever growing collection of books on health, wellness, and nutrition, I spent a good part of my adult life in an unhealthy lifestyle. Yes, on the surface, I was having a good time; I worked out, ate healthy and had a fun job tending bar. Yet, I was tired all the time. I not only lacked energy, I lacked enthusiasm and a clear sense of direction. I was depressed and frankly, miserable.
It got so bad that I had to step away from my life, my dearest friends and tearfully left my city-love, NYC.
On my journey, I discovered a simpler life, on fifteen acres of wild bucolic land, in Upstate NY, and learned to attune to nature and to my own body’s natural signals. I rediscovered my intuition and my senses. It wasn’t long till I picked up my collection of books –and actually read them. Then serendipitously, I began my nutritional training. Through trial and error, I designed a green and gorgeous life. And with my help, I encourage you to do the same. It takes passion and dedication, but the reality is, you’ll have to address your health sooner or later, so why not choose your terms? I share my thoughts on healthy eats, drinks, moves and lifestyle here. Through my blog, 1:1 sessions and lifestyle transformation program, I’m here to support you along the way.
